Giving way to Canada and Australia, the UK Losing Charm in International Education

Giving way to Canada and Australia, the UK Losing Charm in International Education
According to immigration data released by of the Office for National Statistics, the number of the international students coming to the Great Britain has decreased by 15 percent. The drop in numbers is lowest since December 2007. 

The reason for the decline in the numbers can be attributed to fact that the foreign students prefer going to immigrant friendly destinations like Australia and Canada over UK. These student-friendly countries help students in settling easily after completion of their education by providing PR or work permits.

Chris Murray, the migration research fellow at the Institute for Public Policy Research, said, "Over the past couple of years, the government has introduced much stricter rules on international students. For example, they now find it more difficult to work during and after their studies." He added, “this has changed the reputation of the U.K. as a student destination." 

The incumbent PM Theresa May, who was the home secretary during the previous government tenure, has revoked post-study work permits for the international students. An opportunity to work for 2 years after completion of education was scrapped since 2012, as part of the government’s initiative to reduce immigration levels.
